IETM-Australia Council for the Arts Collaboration Programme
The Australia Council for the Arts and IETM international network for contemporary performing arts present a programme of international collaboration relationships between Australia and Europe for 2010-2011.
As part of the agreement between the Australia Council for the Arts and IETM - the international network for contemporary performing arts, a programme of activities has been developed by Project Director, David Pledger to begin building a sustainable matrix of relationships between Australia and Europe by seeding international collaborations via artist-residency programmes, producer placements, inbound projects and a one-off commission.
A number of underlying themes drive the projects:
- acknowledgement of climate change in artistic practice
- an inbound-outbound principle of international exchange
- quality long-term relationships
- the embedding of Australian artists in Europe
Partnerships with a wide variety of artists and organisations in Australia and Europe are featured, including:
- Artistic collaborations
- Producing Producers
- Climate commission
- Expat import
and a special project with Julie's Bicycle, a UK-based broad coalition of music, theatre and scientific experts committed to greening global culture industries, who will work alongside participating artists and producers to assess the carbon footprint of the projects and help develop a standard 'green' rider on which future international activities can be based.
